The Fitwel Viral Response Module covers three key topic areas for mitigating viral transmission: Enhance Indoor Environments, Encourage Behavioral Change, and Build Occupant Trust.
Module strategies include minimum requirements that are necessary to achieve an effective viral response and based on scientific evidence that reflects the need for multi-faceted approaches as well as implementation rigor in order to effectively mitigate contagious disease spread. In addition to minimum requirements, the module introduces dependent strategies, which can expand the health impacts of an achieved parent strategy.
Each strategy in the Viral Response Module requires the submission of official qualifying policies or protocols outlining where and how these policies and protocols are implemented. Assets seeking to verify Viral Response Approval will submit written narratives outlining how these policies/protocols are implemented within the asset itself.
